Using the Polyline (PLINE) command, you can create a 3D boundary for the floor. This video shows you how.
- We're staying in our … zero zero ground floor boundaries .dwg file … and we're going to create one last boundary polyline … for one last element in our 2D Autocad drawing. … Before we start making the drawing … into an import tool to go into 3D studio max. … Now can anybody guess … what that last boundary polyline would be? … Yes, you're quite right. … It would be the 3D floor layer that we created. … Now, the problem we have is we can't really use … the B poly boundary command for this one. … Because we kind of need a boundary that goes all … the way around the edge. … So even if I selected objects to create this … boundary polyline, it would just be complicated. … So basically what we're going to do is cheat … and there's two ways that you can cheat. … But before we do that little bit of cheating … just make sure your on the right layer. … Which is 3D floor, in this case. … And what we do is we go to the draw panel … and you can do it two ways, … you can use the polyline command …
